DSC_0182

The New Year is here!  As my family sits here and remembers all the great times we had in 2015, we also look ahead to the phenomenal year ahead for geeks. 2016 is bringing a wave of new movies, games, books, and more that is shaping it to be the “Year of the Geek”.

Below are just some of the things that my geek family is super excited for. Some things are for young geeklings, some things are more for older geeklings and parents, and some things are for the entire family. It doesn’t matter if you are a comic geek, book geek, or gaming geek, there is something for everyone in the coming year. Take a look and let us know what you are looking forward to in 2016.

Wishing all the geeklings a Happy New Year!
